sheep slaughter



Here in Chad they have a holiday (Or Eid as they say in Arabic) where they kill a sheep in remembrance of Abraham sacrificing a sheep instead of his son. When I was younger and  lived in Sudan they celebrated the same holiday every year. I would freak out and hide in my room for two reasons: I didn't want to see the poor sheep get killed and I was scared of blood. This time I watched our neighbor's kill their sheep and it was actually quite fascinating. I even ate some of the meat after they cooked it later that day and it tasted delicious.

Here's some pictures from the sheep killing. If you have a weak stomach or feel a deep tenderness towards sheep, I would warn you not to proceed.

  2. Well. Despite being interesting - I've got to say...that's disgusting. :) But honestly, I suppose it's no weirder than my fellow Wisconsinites who slaughter various farm animals for a living (like...rabbits?) But for me, an innocent not-really-country-gal...it's a little much.

    However, I must say. I'd rather watch a sheep-killing than do it myself, thank you.
